    Synopsis and trailers follow...

    What’s in the basket? A question Duane Bradley is asked alot when he arrives in New York and checks into the sleazy Hotel Broslin, a place filled with drunks, odd-bods and prostitutes.

    We soon discover the answer, inside is his grotesquely deformed brother Belial. Separated at birth in a brutal operation the Siamese twins have come looking for revenge on the doctors that left Belial for dead and now the basket-dweller is ready to wreak blood-soaked carnage.

    Where the original classic ends the sequels pick up and things start to get really deranged when the brothers meet their long lost aunt Granny Ruth and her houseful of freaks.
